The move highlights ongoing collaboration between tech giants in the AI space including Google, Nvidia, IBM, and AMD.
According to IBM, TensorFlow has become popular among enterprises looking to use deep learning frameworks. By offering PowerAI support, enterprises will have more options to use TensorFlow.
While TensorFlow has only been available for a little over a year, it has quickly become the most popular open source machine learning project on GitHub. IBM’s PowerAI already supported other frameworks and libraries like CAFFETheano, Torch, cuDNN, and NVIDIA DIGITS, but Tensorflow support was sorely missing from this lineup.
